that to mean air tracks to prevent the fall of baghdad to preserve the current government that exists now. there is a habit obama has always had especially with foreign policy. if there is a choice to a and b he always answers c and splits the middle and goes in a different direction. on the one hand we're not putting troops in iraq, but sending 300 people to work on the ground in iraq, military advisers to work on the ground in iraq. we're not going to force al maliki to leave office, but at the is imtime the only future forward for iraq and the one that we'll send the military advisers to defend is one in which al maliki or whoever replaces him changes the way they do business. it's a very complicated message he's sending here and it's probably, you know, the obvious one. i think he's moving forward along the lineses that american people probably expected at this point. >> e.j., the white house seems to really, really want the people of iraq to take it upon themselves to sort this out and for a political solution to sort of coalesce. how reasonable do you think -- or not -- it is reason
